1 x Red Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon
3 x Blue Eyes White Dragon
1 x White Night Dragon
2 x Decoy Dragon
2 x Divine Dragon Apocralyph
2 x Kaibaman
2 x Maiden with Eyes of Blue
2 x Mirage Dragon
2 x  Rider of the Storm Winds
2 x Shining Angel
2 x The White Stone of Legend

1 x Book of Moon
1  x Dark Hole
1 x Heavy Storm

3 x Mystical Space Typhoon
1 Pot of Duality
2 x Silver's Cry

2 x Dimensional Prison
1 x Magic Cylinder
2 x Mirror Force
1 x Solemn Judgment
2 x Solemn Warning
1 x Torrential Tribute

Could you see this deck being at all competitive in local tournaments? Thank you very much for your help

ANSWER: There's an awful lot of stuff here that shouldn't be played in anything at all, Kaibaman and Decoy Dragon are almost completely useless when compared to Blue-Eyed Maiden...
I'd go more like this:

1 Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon
1 Gorz the Emissary of Darkness
1 Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning
1 Darkstorm Dragon
3 Blue-Eyes White Dragon
3 Maiden with Eyes of Blue
3 The White Stone of Legend
2 Rider of Storm Winds
1 Divine Dragon Apocralyph
1 Eclipse Wyvern
(17)

3 Silver's Cry
2 Cards of Consonance
2 Trade-In
2 Forbidden Lance
2 Hallowed Dragon Boneyard
1 Monster Reborn
1 Dark Hole
1 Heavy Storm
1 Book of Moon
(15)

2 Bottomless Trap Hole
2 Compulsory Evacuation Device
2 Torrential Tribute
1 Solemn Judgment
1 Solemn Warning
(8)

Give that a go, see what you think.

Answer
I still find it odd that every deck people send me to fix these days contains 3 Mystical Space Typhoon. I guess old habits are hard to break, since Space Typhoon is awful this format. It does nothing at all to Dragons, virtually nothing to Mermail, and One-for-Ones are not going to win you the game vs Prophecy...
It has minor uses in the Evilswarm Matchup, but at the end of the day I'd rather have something that Kills Ophion or shuts out Kerykeion...
Space Typhoon is just outdated...

That's a recurring theme across this deck, it's full of cards that just aren't that good anymore. Cards like Dimensional Prison haven't seen any play all format.
Solemn Warning has been Limited to One for a while too...

Go like this:

1 Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon
3 Light and Darkness Dragon
1 Prime Material Dragon
3 Redox, Dragon Ruler of Boulders
2 Divine Dragon Apocralyph
3 Totem Dragon
3 Masked Dragon
1 Red-Eyes Wyvern
2 Exploder Dragon
1 Delta Flyer
1 Reactan, Dragon Ruler of Pebbles
(20)

3 Gold Sarcophagus
2 Pot of Duality
1 Foolish Burial
1 Heavy Storm
1 Dark Hole
1 Monster Reborn
1 Book of Moon
(10)

2 Bottomless Trap Hole
2 Breakthrough Skill
2 Torrential Tribute
2 Compulsory Evacuation Device
1 Solemn Warning
1 Solemn Judgment
(10)

Realistically I'd also like to play Blaster and Burner in here, but that would probably push it too close to Dragon Ruler for your linking, even with the added access to Yamata Dragon that it provides...

Give that a go, see what you think.

I'm able to answer any and all questions related to the English Yu-Gi-Oh! game itself. This includes, but isn't limited to:

Deck Fixes: Either making suggestions and improvements on a deck you've already built, or building a deck from scratch for you. In either case, please give an idea of the kind of deck you're building, the level of play you're planning to use it in (small tournaments, regionals etc), and the kind of budget you're on.
Please format decks in a way that's easy to read. Each card name should be on its own line, with a number before it indicating how many you're playing. Please split decks into Monsters, Spells and Traps.

NOTE: A level of reasonability is assumed with this. I cannot build you a nationals winning deck based on monsters whose name starts with the Letter 'A' on a budget of 4($6)... Nor will I generally respond well to Questions touting "No Xyz, Synchro... etc" or disallowing cards from certain parts of the show. I haven't seen the show in a number of years and find these conditions to usually be poorly-defined.

Rulings: On any card interacting with any other card(s). Tell me the scenario, and I'll tell you what happens.

I won't be answering questions on whether a trade is fair or not, or on how much X-card is worth, as both these kinds of question can be answered by using Ebay's completed listings page.
